MLB commissioner Bud Selig will receive the first-ever Commissioner Bud Selig Leadership Award at the Baseball Assistance Team charity dinner next Tuesday night. No word on whether or not Selig also will present the award to himself.

All jokes aside, the B.A.T. is a non-profit organization affiliated with Major League Baseball, helping those in the “baseball family” who have fallen on hard times.
Selig has been a polarizing figure throughout his tenure as commissioner, and he is planning to retire at the end of the 2014 season after 22 years in the role.
